Oh my goodness I haven't used ribbon

Most of the cards that I make have ribbon on it ,I actually stopped myself from using ribbon on this card to keep it simple and hopefully achieve a "classy and elegant" look . I made this card keeping the colours as the main focus. I stamped the chipboard flowers with a black stamp pad. With the grey I did't actually have any grey paper so printed a grey square on which I placed the bird rub on and cut out, slightly distressed the bird shape using a paper file, attatched this to the card with self adhesive mounting squares to add some dimension. The white is very subtle on this card and the light pink has the card's sentiment on it.

This is also my first card that I am entering in the  Moxie Fab Card Style Week challenges, hopefully I will get to make a card for all the different styles, I Can only try.

Hope everyone is having a good week, for me this week has gone quickly, as usual so looking forward to the weekend.

The challenges I have included-
Colour Q challenge 41-Colour Q
